Discovering Trek: First Con-Tact


This week, Mike and Emilie are joined by author Jake Black and his 3 kids, Jonas, Rachel, and Elisabeth, to discuss “First Con-Tact.” Dal comes across a former mentor and has mixed feelings as the rest of the crew meet her.

As the crew of the U.S.S. Protostar continue to learn the many things that their ship can do, they receive a distress call from what turns out to be a female Ferengi Daimon, Nandi, who essentially raised Dal before he ended up on Tars Lamora. Through this chance meeting, the crew ends up making first contact with a new alien species, but because of Nandi’s scheming, break the Prime Directive in the process.

Was Nandi a good example for Dal’s formative years? What does this mean for how Dal will act in the future? We discuss that and more on this episode of Discovering Trek: Prodigy!
